Chris Rock Scores $40M For Two Netflix Specials

Following an eight-year absence, Chris Rock is making his return to television as a stand-up comic and has signed a massive deal with Netflix for two stand-up specials.

Rock has reportedly secured a whopping $40 million for the specials, a new high mark for a stand-up comic and more than such A-list comedians such as Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld and Amy Schumer have commanded.

The first Rock show will tape in 2017 and follow a new world tour that is currently being planned. It’s unclear when either that first show will air or when the second will tape and be rolled out. Rock recently directed HBO’s Amy Schumer special.
